New tournament for Cascade basketball men

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball program is launching an annual CIS-sanctioned preseason tourney.

The Honda Way/UFV Cascades Men’s Basketball Tournament debuts this fall, Oct. 28-29.

The inaugural event features the host Cascades, the University of Guelph Gryphons, the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack of Kamloops, and the Northwest University Eagles from Kirkland, Wash.

“It’s going to be a very good quality of basketball early in the year,” Cascades head coach Barnaby Craddock pointed out. “It’s exciting to get the tradition started.”

“I think it’s huge,” UFV centre Jasper Moedt echoed. “It’s a great way to start the season off right, and get some notice nationally.”

The tournament opens on Friday, Oct. 28, with TRU facing Northwest University (6 p.m.) and UFV vs. Guelph (8 p.m.).

The following day, it’s TRU vs. Guelph (6 p.m.) and UFV vs. Northwest (8 p.m.).

All games are at the Envision Athletic Centre.
